We had an excellent afternoon exploring Warsaw's history with Conrad. He was extremely knowledgeable, fluent in English, and offered a flexible and entertaining itinerary. Our guide was invested in portraying this history factually and free from personal biases. I would highly recommend this tour to others.
Marcin was very...

Marcin was very knowledgeable and interesting! By sharing personal experiences, he made our tour much more than a history lesson. I would highly recommend taking this tour!!! He was the best!

You think you seen all in Warsaw? Get a trip around a city with Marcin to visit non-trivial places. Interesting colours and flavours of history at tip of your fingers when you're with the right guide!
Stalin would be jealous

Who says history has to be stale? I had a blast tooling around Warsaw in a vintage Fiat from the 1980's with Konrad.

Looking at some of those poorly designed Communist buildings while driving in a car from the era with a similar reputation (FIAT = Fix It Again, Tony) is more than a gimmick. It reminds you how things were not that long ago.

Konrad was perfect for this role. He is knowledgeable, he is a good driver and he is adventurous. When we were in the plaza of the former Communist Party building (the "Party House"), a throng of extras working on a film nearby filed into a queue to get a free lunch inside. We wanted to see the inside so we lined up and got a chance to see the interior of a building that would normally be closed on a Sunday. Then we hopped back into the Fiat for more adventures.

I had just arrived in Poland from the U.S. and I had a suitcase of warm clothes to donate to Ukrainian refugees. We dropped it off at the volunteer station at the train station, which was right by the Palace of Culture, the first stop on our tour. Konrad also got the address for an evening activity on my schedule that I could not locate.

Jenky, comrades!
